Burnaby Scottish Country Dance Club

 

Burnaby Entertainment Team

The Burnaby Scottish Country Dance Club offers a warm welcome to all who would like to experience the joys of Scottish country dancing:

Classes for 2018-19 start on Monday, September 17, 2018 at the Scandinavian Community Centre, 6540 Thomas Street, Burnaby, BC, just north of the Kensington interchange on Highway 1.

Beginners will meet from 7:00 to 8:30 pm and intermediate and advanced dancers from 7:30 to 10:00 pm. Weekly classes continue September through April.

*No experience necessary to begin, and one doesn’t need to be Scottish.

*You do not need to bring a partner.  For sociability’s sake, dancing with many different partners is encouraged.

*Dress for class should be chosen for comfort and ease of movement: skirt or dress for ladies, and casual pants or kilt for men.

*Footwear generally consists of ghillies or ballet slippers, but any light shoe may be worn to begin.

*Perhaps you are not sure if Scottish country dancing is for you?  To make it easier for you to decide, your first two classes comprise a free trial period.

The Burnaby Scottish Country Dance Club (BSCSC) was formed in 1972. The club has two qualified dancing teachers: Rosemary Coupe and Cathrine Conings.  The club hosts an annual dance in March, often with the music of the Vancouver Fiddle Orchestra.  Members also enjoy dancing at many Scottish country dance events held throughout the lower mainland. All members of the BSCDC also belong to the Vancouver Branch of the Royal Scottish Country Dance Society, a worldwide organization which provides essential resources, trains teachers and sets standards for this dance form.

The Burnaby Scottish Country Dance Club has an Entertainment Team that is available to perform at community events, retirement homes and health care facilities, particularly in January “Burns Season”.
